Patience = deep breaths in and out

When you're in the shower and the water runs out,

When you're starving hungry and your stock is empty,

When you're under stress and it goes on to multiply,

When you douse your head in coffee, yet it gets heavier,

Know that God is teaching you patience.

He wants to know whether you'll be like the others.

He checks if you, too will complain at the slightest hurt.

Will you?

You might, for some part.

After all, you're human, too.

But beyond a point, know that He is your best friend.

No matter how bad the situation does get,

No matter how much you want to scream and yell,

No matter how many tears you're having to hold back,

YOU will never play the ugly blame game.

You know that if there has been anything lacking,

It has to have been on your part alone.

Have faith in your closest confidante.

Feel Him stilling your trembling fingers.

Breathe and let Him ease the lump in your throat.

He knows what you need.

He knows how to get it to you.

Look at your destination, be it through hazy eyes.

Remember the promises you've made to yourself.

It ain't far.

No, hun, it ain't.

Buck up!

Hold on tight.

We're racing you through the borders.

For a while, let Him and Me handle the reigns.

Stay still and watch.

We will get you to win- yes, we will.

Learn your chapter on patience well.

Keep taking the deep breaths.

Turn up the hope.

Gel into it, your faith- pray with focus.

Affirm your way through.

Keep your eyes wide open.

Don't miss out on the history you're about to create.
